Raipur, 2 June. Hitting out at West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamul Congress supremo Mamta Banerjee for massive post-poll violence in the state, former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Dr. Raman Singh said Bengal which was known and respected for its intellect and wisdom worldwide is burning today.
Dr. Singh alleged that Mamta Didi is unable to tolerate the fact that BJP has increased its tally from 3 to 77 seats in the recently concluded West Bengal assembly hustings. Notices are being served to the factory owners where BJP supporters work, apparently to deprive the party supporters of their means of livelihood, he said. The former Chief Minister was talking to reporters after a virtual rally organized to protest the violence against BJP workers in West Bengal.
West Bengal which the country and the world looked at with respect as the land where Vande Mataram enthused and inspired lakhs of youth to free the nation, is burning today, former Chhattisgarh CM stated. Democracy is being murdered there. BJP workers are being harassed, murdered. Horrible form of violence is being shown, he alleged
You may not have heard of migration after the elections anywhere in the country, but people of West Bengal are forced to take shelter in other states to save their lives, he charged adding that such pictures remind the nation of horrific events unleashed on Bengalis during the Partition.
He said that the peaceful state of Bengal is burning. Houses are being burnt in and a terrible form of violence is raising its head in CM Mamata’s state. The jobs of BJP leaders and supporters are being snatched away, this situation compels people to think and BJP workers accept this challenge, Raman reiterated.
Raman Singh said that the BJP has started a nationwide campaign against the efforts to hold democracy hostage in West Bengal. Party General Secretary Bhupendra Yadav apprised the leaders and workers of the situation in Bengal.
